The forum is back up. I'm really loopy. It's a little before 8:00 PM, the fireworks are still two hours away (as if I were planning on seeing them in the first place, although I did want to go to the parade, lumberjack games and other 4th of July festivities) and I'm ready to go to bed.
There's one remaining problem I'm aware of: importing additional skins (IPBoard-speak for color schemes / styles) isn't working properly. I have a good idea why and how it might be fixed. It can wait until I recover from all this, which might not be until Friday.
At least there are a shitload of new anime avatars.
And you can put polls in your blogs.
Have fun with the new forum.
